I’m definitely on team Vampire Weekend, and have been so ever since my former cubemate Caroline (who went to Columbia with Ezra and co.) played their debut pre-release EVERY MORNING.
If you follow the guys on Twitter, you’re probably aware that they’ve been teasing a new album for a while. Well, there’s still no release date, but the band premiered a new song called “Unbelievers” Halloween night on the Jimmy Kimmel show…and they performed it in costume.
I must admit, Vampire Weekend is one of those bands for whom the live experience doesn’t add much to the recorded experience-but their records are pretty awesome, so I’ll take it.
Looking forward to the new album–whenever it shows up.
